Before you make what is quite possibly the biggest purchase of your life, it’s a smart decision to get a licensed CT home inspector. Usually you can make your home purchase contract contingent on the home inspection being satisfactory. So, how do you find an experienced and licensed Connecticut home inspector? We’ve got some tips that will help you find the perfect fit!
Just One Step in the Home Buying Process
A Connecticut home inspection is just one small step in the journey of purchasing a home. Remember, even if the results of the inspection process come back less than satisfactory, home buyers may still agree to go along with the sale. It is still important to get a quality home inspection from an experienced home inspector in Connecticut because it can give you important information and understanding into the property that you are purchasing. It will also help you plan and understand what maintenance and repairs will be required to keep your home in top shape.
What Does a Connecticut Home Inspection Cost?
In most parts of Connecticut, a home inspection can range in price from $300 to $500. This can vary based on many different things like the size and age of the home. This also doesn’t include certain types of inspections and other types of services offered by your licensed home inspector. Additional services can include inspections for radon, mold, water testing, and loan draw inspections.
Finding a Reputable CT Inspector
There are a number of ways to find the perfect Connecticut Home Inspector. You can get suggestions from your real estate agent and you can also look at reviews on Yelp, Google, Facebook and Angie’s List. Anyone who has purchased a home has likely used a home inspector, so this is a great place to start!
Your real estate agent is likely to give you the names of one or more home inspectors as well. Call and interview those inspectors, look at their websites and check out their reviews on Angie’s List, Yelp and Google. Mortgage professionals and friends and colleagues who recently bought homes are other good sources of recommendations. Most importantly, make sure they are licensed and certified.
The InterNACHI organization is a great resource to find someone. Paying members have to pass an exam and are required to take continuing education courses to stay a member. One thing that sets Sunrise Home Inspection apart is that Kevin Power is a Certified Master Inspector. All CMIs are experienced, dedicated to education, and have a proven record in the inspection industry.
